two sons Liam (b. 1985) and Joshua (b. 1989).
In October 1984, Springfield married his girlfriend, Barbara Porter, in his family's church in Australia. They had met several years earlier when Springfield was recording Working Class Dog – she was working as the recording studio receptionist. The couple has two children.
In 1985, when his first son was born and after the release of his Tao album, Springfield took a break from his musical career to spend more time with his family, and to deal with the depression that had affected him since his adolescence.
